Well this road trip has gone from a dream to now a reality. I booked the flights last night to LA
Arrive LA Friday 10th May
Depart LA Thursday 4th July.
Hopefully this will give us enought time to complete the trip.Now its a matter of getting the route sorted out. We have a route planned, just need to plot the days and stops.
Still undecided on a van or a car.The van was last year was great as we spent a lot of time in National Parks and RV Parks. I looked at Jucy Vans but all booked out aound out time and a bit small for me to sleep in.
We still spent a few nights in Motels so the overal van / motel mix was getting expensive.
The real positive with a van was being able to put the long hours in without the worry of getting to a motel on time.
We want to get good value for our dollar on a long trip like this.
THe insurance part got us last year and we were put on the spot as out travel insurance was a bit confusing. Ended up paying an extra $18 per day for 42 days so added anothe $750 on to the hire.
The rental people wouldnt help too much, just said do you feel OK if you dont take out the insurance.
Still need to work on this one.
